Social workers advocate on behalf of individuals and larger systems to increase equity and access to resources such as housing, food, and health services. Our profession was established around the principles of social justice. Challenging social injustice with and on behalf of vulnerable and oppressed individuals and groups of people is one of the core principles of our code of ethics.
